I understand that supplementing with Iodine has the following benefits:
All hormone receptors are dependent on iodine, which increases the sensitivity of the receptor to the hormone it is designed for. For example, it can increase the sensitivity of insulin receptors and thus help with diabetes. Similarly, it can increase the sensitivity of the receptors for neurotransmitters (e.g., serotonin, dopamine, GABA) in the brain. Thus, Depression may lift after taking iodine. It can also increase the sensitivity of receptors for testosterone and FSH/LH.
If supplementing with Iodine can increase the sensitivity of the receptors for neurotransmitters, where does that leave people who are very MSG-reactive? Glutamic acid is a neurotransmitter and if by taking iodine, the receptors for it become more sensitive, we'll be even more worse off than before.
Since Iodine supplementation is so crucial for so many bodily functions, what can be done for those who suffer from MSG-hypersensitivity?
